With over 2000 members Stylos is one of the biggest societies in the Netherlands. Each member is automatically a reader of the pantheon// and the magazine therefore has a broad student readership. Architecture students are generally known for there wide interest in new products and technologies. Not only students read the pantheon//. The magazine is a well-known name in the Delft University of Technology. The pantheon// is often spotted on reading tables of architecture offices.


The editorial office is run by a varied group of dedicated students that want to broaden their horizon and be critical about architecture and their environment.


This year Stylos exists 120 years and therefor it is a special year to become a contact of the society. In the pantheon// the 24th lustrum will be celebrated with a special publication.

In April fifty (inter)national students from the USA to Spain, Eindhoven, or even Delft, descended to the faculty. Indesem interests architecture students from universities all over the world.

ideas by trying them out. This means students as well as professional architects should experiment and make as much as possible. Only through finding what does not work, will one know why and how something else will work. In any other case, a design would just be a random guess. To educate future architects with this mentality, space for experiment within the educational system is essential. If students are not able to fail, they will never be daring to try something different or new. Unfortunately the current system, with checklists of deliverables combined with a high workload, does not particularly allow for this kind of behavior. If, as is the case in some master studios, people with good ideas fail and people with shitty ideas but the required drawings pass, there is something greatly wrong with the assessment model.

a full week in this area of Amsterdam North, originally designed by Koolhaas. The groups read about, visited and researched the location as much as possible, before defining an important issue that they could tackle in a week. The group was free to define the scale of this issue, and accordingly also the scale on which they chose to work. The final product was presented to and judged by a renowned jury, consisting of Marc Koehler, Patrick Healy,

dable instruments that could be used all over the neighbourhood. Instruments like paint, pergolas, sand, wooden boards, parasols, etc. According to the current situation the best location is chosen for every instrument and placed there temporarily. From this moment on, the residents are free to adapt and even relocate the object to fit their needs. They could also choose to copy an instrument and place it in other locations, if it has proven to work exceptionally well.

Although the system in its current state might not stimulate being experimental and failing while getting the benefits out of it, I would still suggest students to do so. Do not accepts the checklists, be smarter than that. Direct your own process and your own learning. What do yóu want to make? Where do you want to be? Yes, the system has power, because it decides whether you pass. But if you already adjust your designs during education, how strong are you going to be in practice? Perhaps if you are trying out new stuff you need to prove your ideas more, work a little harder than by following the rules. But aren’t rules just really boring? At least this system trains you to be strong, to keep believing in your own ideas although others will not always support them. Just keep going, experiment, fail, improve and prove them wrong, eventually it will make you stand out.//

scale matters

are those who shape the world, and in doing so, try to make the world a little better. Their job is to implement new inventions, or to come up with new solutions to new problems. This often means working in unfamiliar situations or on projects where no standard solutions exist. As there isn’t one correct answer in design practice, students should be trained in detailed analysis of the project, but also in critical reflection on their own ideas. In this way they will be able to comprehend whether their concepts fit their analysis, and thus the situation they are designing for. As there is not a predefined result both students and practicing designers are working towards, one can only test

By utilizing these lines, the plan strengthens the relationship between the neighbourhood and its surroundings, especially towards the IJ.

Het thema van deze workshop ‘Scale Matters’ werd toegepast op gebiedstransformatie in AmsterdamNoord. We werkten in groepen van 5 personen met 1 tot 3 begeleiders. Het was een geheel nieuwe ervaring voor mij. Ten eerste om samen te werken met bouwkunde studenten uit verschillende landen en instellingen. Ten tweede om te werken met begeleiders uit verschillende landen, met verschillende invalshoeken. Mijn begeleider schreef voor een architectuurtijdschrift. De begeleider voor een groep naast die van ons was freelance architect en weer een ander was stedebouwkundige.

The instruments from the catalogue address the human scale, but as a whole influence several other scales as well. They allow activities to be spread more equally across the neighbourhood. Quiet, abandoned areas can be given a certain quality, or character, that makes them interesting again for certain users and/ or times during the year. For instance, several

urban design. The speakers spoke about their vision on Indesem’s topic, “Scale Matters”. On Friday, Irene Gallou made us realize that “when you design a city it’s not all about buildings […] You have to jump scales all the time.” Herman Hertzberger added on Monday that “It’s not local vs. global. It’s local and global […] How can we combine local and global? That is our power!” He continued by stating that the Borneokade as the “now,” is in fact the Herengracht of the past. Gert Urhahn talked about the Spontaneous City and how projects and locations should have the opportunity to “let it grow!” And according to Sjoerd Soeters, “’Scale Matters’ in the sense of proportion.”//

Ik stel het op prijs dat onze faculteit en studenten van onze faculteit dat organiseren en de mogelijkheid bieden aan ons om mee te doen. En dat zeg ik niet om aardig te zijn. Voor mij was het echt een leerzame ervaring. Door samen te werken met studenten van verschillende nationaliteiten, sommigen waren al werkende architecten, realiseerde ik me hoe belangrijk communicatie is voor een project. Voor een architect, maar eigenlijk voor alle vormen van samenwerking. Niet alleen communicatie op het gebied van taal is belangrijk, maar ook de manier van denken: Hoe kan je ideeën van anderen begrijpen, die uit een andere opleiding komen, of van een ander land? Dit vond ik heel interessant. Ik hoop dat deze workshops altijd beschikbaar zullen zijn voor studenten en iedereen die geïnteresseerd is. Dit zijn échte educatieve projecten, die belangrijk zijn voor de opleiding van iedere student.//

One of the Netherlands’ most experienced architectural practices Claus&Kaan Architects hold two establishments: Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The Amsterdam team currently resides in a nicely situated building of their own design on the coast of IJburg. Office manager Ellen Wybenga told the story of this beautiful working environment for Pantheon//.

expressieve vorm heeft de Panton Chair zich kunnen ontwikkelen tot een Design

icoon van het design van de twintigste eeuw.

Design speelt een hoofdrol bij Vitra en dat is merkbaar in alles. Zo heeft het bedrijf in de jaren tachtig een eigen museum opgericht, het Vitra Design Museum. Dit is een culturele instelling die zelfstandig functioneert en die zelf tentoonstellingen maakt over vormgeving en architectuur. De reizende tentoonstellingen gaan vanuit Weil am Rhein langs musea in de hele wereld. Bovendien beheert het Vitra Design Museum één van de allerbelangrijkste designverzamelingen. De collectie van het Vitra Design Museum is na een bescheiden begin in de jaren tachtig uitgegroeid tot een van de meest belangrijke internationale collecties op het gebied van hedendaags meubelontwerp. In 1989 omvatte de collectie

Joyn tafel van Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, te vinden in alle ontwerpateliers aan de Julianalaan

ongeveer duizend objecten; sindsdien is deze uitgebreid tot ongeveer zesduizend stukken. De bedrijfsgebouwen van he museum zijn op zichzelf ook de moeite waard, want ze zijn ontworpen door een aantal grote architecten. Frank Gehry bouwde er bijvoorbeeld een fabriekshal en het museum. Tadao Ando ontwierp een conferentiepaviljoen en van Zaha Hadid staat er een brandweerkazerne. De fabriekshallen zijn van de architecten Alvaro Siza en Nicholas Grimshaw. Bouwkunde op de Julianalaan Een groot deel van de Vitra collectie is inmiddels ook terug te vinden in de nieuwe tijdelijke huisvesting van Bouwkunde aan de Julianalaan in Delft. In afstemming met de ontwerpbureaus verantwoordelijk voor de inrichting van het gebouw, zijn de verschillende meubels van Vitra opgenomen in het interieur. Alles van ruime werkplekken met grote witte bureau's tot gezellige zithoeken met bijzondere meubels uit de collectie vind je terug in het gebouw. Algues van Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

In Nederland kan de hele Vitra collectie bekeken worden
